Small (In a nice way) Racecourse
Aug 2021 • Couples
A very nice, small, traditional racecourse in Yorkshire. We've been to a few around the country and they all offer something different. Thirsk is nice and small, it's all there where you need it. Great views of the course and racing post. You can go into the "what-looks-to-be-Special-area" but it's not, it's for everyone. This area means you can be right next to the finishing line. What a buzz! Then, two steps and you're at the toilets and food stalls. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Only negative, the food stalls are limited. We've been to others that have a lot more on offer and choice.

My first time at the races and it was definitely a great one - I even got a winner! The staff were friendly and helpful when explaining how things worked and where we could go etc. It was a great evening, enjoyed by everyone in my group!

After missing last years race meeting due to the restrictions we managed to get a table for 8 in the Hamilton Dining area. Service was slow and we had to constantly look for our waitress to get drinks hovever they were busy and it appeared to be a staff shortage issue. I ordered a lager which cost £6.28 and was warm. Other people in our group reported this issue which was not resolved. The meal itself was excellent and everything was perfect as was afternoon tea. All in all a great day with a couple of minor hick ups.

Excellent Day out
Aug 2021 • Couples
Third visit to this great friendly racecourse, the sun came out & we had great seats and table on the concourse grass. Picked our horses for each race, had a drink then went to the grandstand to watch each race, great day out…….and we won👍🏻

Great Fun
Jun 2021 • Couples
This is a race course we visit at least once a year and always have an excellent time there. It is a friendly, no-frills place and caters for its guests extremely well.

This was a Friday afternoon meeting so a decent crowd was in attendance. It wasn’t expensive to get in, easy to get drinks and there is a range of food options available.

Viewing is very good as well and we just took our two camping chairs and sat near the half Furlong pole to watch the races unfold.

There are lots of bookmakers so getting a bet on is easy as well. It is only a 10 minute walk maximum from the town centre and there is a free bus I believe from the train station to the racecourse itself.

Brilliant Day Out
Jun 2021 • Couples
We were on holiday in Yorkshire and decides to book a day at the races. We chose the Dine & view package and it was fab.

Brilliant view of the course, delicious three course lunch and afternoon tea. The staff were very attentive.

Couldn't fault the experience and would highly recommend.

LOVELY COMPACT COURSE
Aug 2019
It’s so nice when you can walk to a racecourse from your hotel. Thirst is a prime example of this. A nice compact racecourse with all the facilities you need.
So much nicer than all these commercial courses, that offer alternative events.
Worth a visit if you’ve never been.

A good day’s racing
Sep 2019 • Couples
Last minute decision to go racing while on holiday nearby.
Small, friendly course (and surprisingly good weather) made for a good afternoon’s entertainment. Had the added bonus of seeing a runner from Elite Racing Club to which I belong. Maurice Dancer looked a picture even if he did a Foxtrot rather than a Quickstep!
